Product Description

For God made the Earth--He made everything!
He makes all the wonders each season will bring.
He changes the colors on leaves big and small,
red, brown and yellow to tell us it's Fall.

Destined to become a family keepsake, this unique, jacketed hardcover celebrates the wonders of an entire season. With help from the alphabet, preschoolers journey through God's harvest blessings--in the process discovering just how much there is to be thankful for! The fun is infectious as they learn to appreciate autumn for its beauty and bounty, opportunities to celebrate with friends and family, and traditions like barn dances, corn mazes, pumpkin carving, and more. Recommended for ages 4 to 7.

Author Bio

When Kathy-jo Wargin was a young girl, each night after dinner, her mother let her choose between washing the dishes or writing a poem. Before long, she decided that if she grew up to be a writer, she wouldn't have to do any dishes. She has since learned that even though she has published more than twenty award-winning books for children, she still has to wash the dishes. Kathy-jo lives in Minnesota with her husband and her son. Go to her website www.kathy-jowargin.com YaWen Ariel Pang enjoys creating bright, cheerful, and whimsical illustrations with a little humor whenever possible. Her illustrations are like Ariel herself, always bringing a smile to people's faces and hearts. Ariel graduated from the Academy of Art College in San Francisco and currently resides in Taiwan.

Editorial Reviews

Pang's illustrations are done in an appealing primitive style in a warm palette of fall shades, with a thoughtful overall design that sets off the art in oval shapes against solid backgrounds of autumnal colors. -- Kirkus Review

    This is your typical alphabet book. The top of each page gives a short story or explanation, told in rhyming verse. The bottom of each page reiterates the something specific that starts with the featured letter. For example: "Apples and Acorns and all sorts of things -- Let's find the blessings that God's autumn brings. A is for Apple."The bold illustrations show diverse characters through great contrast and rich colors.What I Like: The text clearly represents the omnipresence of God. Almost every page talks about what He has provided for us and how He talks with us in every place and situation. It encourages a relationship with Him; I like that. I also appreciate anything that furthers literacy and reading readiness.What I Dislike: The split text makes it cumbersome to read. I recommend reading just the story at the top or just the letters at the bottom. Otherwise, it feels like a continual self-interruption.The illustrations are odd; all the characters sport heavy eyebrows and cone-like noses. Everytime we turned the page, my children would ask "Mommy, why are those people so cross?" They even found some characters "scary" who weren't meant to be.Finally, I'm not thrilled with the choice of words featured for each letter. I would have prefered that all references to Halloween be omitted. In this alphabet, D, J and T stand for Dress-up, Jack-o-lanterns and Trick-or-treat. Others will be unfamiliar to many children, especially those who don't live in rural areas. For example, the page on C talks about corn mazes and Q talks about the Quilting Bee. My kids (raised just outside NYC) didn't recognize these; they also didn't understand Harvest, Indian Corn, Orchards or Ravens. If you live in the country, perhaps these are familiar to your children. But if you live in an urban area, you may have a lot to explain.Overall Rating: Ho-hum.Tanya - Christian Children's Book Review

    I saw this in Borders and I fell in love with it. It is A-Z book of all the blessings of fall even for some of the things at Halloween. It was just a delightful read-aloud book - the illustrations were excellent.
